Since yesterday I have searched lot of times and read many blogs to find out what does the Google TV means for a technical person like me. How can I use this technology or how can I think of using it. I want to understand the opportunities that lie in this breakthrough Google TV that can help me and you. Here is some information that may help you as it helped me:

I would really appreciate your opinion on how to do you think that Google TV can be utilized from a perspective of a technologist or an entrepreneur.
A new revolution has arrived to a sector that is still not captured by the latest in IT and telecom. Lots of attempts have been made but none has made a huge impact. But it seems this time the story is different as couples of companies are getting together with Google to tear it apart. The sector is none other than what is watched 5 hours on average per day by every American and more than 4 billion people watch it across the world, THE TV.
So that got us thinking…what if we helped people experience the best of TV and the best of the web in one seamless experience? Imagine turning on the TV and getting all the channels and shows you normally watch and all of the websites you browse all day
With just a few hours left before our submission deadline, we’ve received more than 600 community responses to our request for information (RFI), and more than 190,000 responses from individuals (we’ll post an update with the final numbers later tonight).
Let’s wait and watch where Google will build the experimental, ultra high-speed broadband network. Will they start somewhere in Bay Area as it is where their headquarters are OR will they try this in some other place. We all are curious and waiting to see who is the chosen one?

It was beyond my imagination to understand the new wave of advertisement that is taking shape right now. I have never thought how social media can be used in the media ads. This was clearly evident as I surfed the following two state of the technology ads:
- An award-winning rich media ad that was created by Euro RSCG for the new Volvo XC60
- A great campaign for Harley Davidson, created by the agency Overdrive
Both of these adds almost like websites with interactive video, games, photo and gallery. At the very same time these were seamlessly integrated with twitter and facebook. The huge number of hits that these ads gathered is evident of the fact that a revolution in the field of marketing is going to take place soon as the technologies are more available to achieve the same now.
